Report due today on sale of publicly-owned forests

An independent report out today is expected to come out against the sale of publicly-owned forests. The government had originally proposed to privatise the Forestry Commission, which owns Haldon Forest in Devon, and Neroche, on the Somerset-Devon border.

The review is likely to recommend that it is handed over to a trust instead. Credit: ITV West Country
